Aby-a-Day – November 26: Wordless Wednesday (20lb turkey, 10lb Aby)









Abys in Need – Copper in Denver, Colorado

Look at this handsome man in a shelter in Colorado!

“‘Find a penny pick it up, all the day you’ll have good luck.’ You’ve heard that one, right? Well clearly, I’m the shiny copper penny that you should be picking up! My name is Copper and I am a striking guy if I do say so myself. I sure hope that you are looking for your personal lucky penny because I am it!

I arrived at MaxFund after having been found at a bank. Ironic really, given the whole penny thing. Alas, some nice folks brought me to MaxFund, where I had a bit of a rocky start. You see, I am what is known as a feral cat, meaning that I have not spent much time around humans and am not quite sure what people are all about. Over time here at the shelter I’ve learned a lot and I am coming around at my own pace to this new way of living. I have to say, I’m quite fond of living indoors and being well taken care of, though I still have some learning to do with respect to interacting with people.

While I may not be a cuddly lap cat, I am a great guy and I want to learn how to love people. I can promise you that I will give it my best effort and I ask that you do the same. With patience and time I just know that we’ll be the best of friends. Just remember, you’ve found your penny you just have to pick it up, adopt it and take it home with you!

The MaxFund cat shelter is located in Denver, Colorado at 720 West 10th Ave. 720-266-6081. We are closed Tuesdays.”

His fee, according to the Facebook post, is $125, and Copper is neutered, microchipped and has his shots.

Interestingly, someone commented on the post wondering if he could possibly be this Aby, who went missing last year in Aurora, CO. Wouldn’t that be an amazing story, if that cat – missing since May 2013 – and this one turned out to be same?
